Are Freemasons all males or do they allow female members? Because there are claims Madonna is a Freemason when I thought it was an all male group
There are female groups derived from masonry, as well as groups that consist of both genders. The Order of the Amaranth, for instance, has both genders. Job's Daughters (something that I was once a part of) and Rainbow Girls (has some technical name I don't remember) are both girl derivatives of masonry. For Job's, a member has to be a decent of a mason, but for Rainbow it's whatever. The masons themselves are supposed to be solely male though.
Yes However, there are "female versions" such as The Sisterhood of Isis. Supposedly, from what I hear of a friend of mine-her father's a freemason- Sisterhood of Isis is a hire up of the masons.
Well, most Grand Lodges (official ones) won't accept women, but women can join regular lodges and there also are many female orders related to freemasonry.
